about what the obama's administration is, at times they are saying mubarak they want him to transition out and now a special envoy that visits the region says not so fast. what are you hearing there? >> the message certainly has changed in flavor, perhaps in total to be quite honest. we just saw a special envoy frank lisner -- whirt ner, obama they want a full removal of mubarak. they say it's crucial that they stage the transition. dramatically different what we were hearing. he says he believes increasingly they will be an orderly transition to democracy. >> i therefore believe that president mubarak's continued leadership is critical, it's his opportunity write his own legacy. >> reporter: now speaking if munich, secretary of state hillary clinton has today said that the transition pro said led by omar suleiman must be supported. officials are quick to say she doesn't mean that there is any u.s. support for the vice president to have a new role in the new government come the elections that are planned for later this year. they are not trying to endorse anybody in particular but by s
mitchell, live in washington. president obama says that government and big business have to work together in order to try to create jobs. today he told the chamber of commerce that his administration is committed to building a foundation for stronger growth. he called on business leaders to start investing in the economy again. nbc news chief white house correspondent chuck todd joins us now. what is the strategy? this is clearly the build daily white house strategy and it's evolving new relationship with business? >> reporter: and even almost to underscore the idea that he's trying to have a more personal relationship with the business community, the president walked across lafayette park to the chamber of commerce building. it's all part of this message that the obama white house wants to say that we're not against big business. what's interesting about the chamber's approach is that there seems to be a decision made by the chamber that they have to look like that they want to work with the obama white house, that it isn't necessary great politics for them, if they look more pro republi
that the departure of president mubarak will happen. he will leave. but the big question is whether obama and the u.s. administration have the end game in place. do they know what will happen the minute he leaves? do they know who will fill the vacuum? this is no gain. i know everybody is watching it on television, but it's not a movie. it's real life. and these are real people. and this is a very, very volatile and very unpredictable region. and we want to make sure that whatever happens in egypt next is for the best for the egyptain people and the stability of the region. this could be mubarak's last weekend, but it could be egypt's last weekend of stability. and i think that this should be managed cautiously, gradually and carefully to assure that when mubarak leaves, there is a credible regime in place, which will, indeed, bring the egyptain people the democracy and freedom that they wish and they deserve. megyn: more and more some are focusing on elbaradei, who was a u.n. weapons' inspector that went into iran. he said there was nothing to worry about. when he got out, other weapons' inspector

the big game, president obama sat down with bill o'reilly. obama called egypt a changed place, and downplayed concerns of the muslim brotherhood taking power there. they also talked about health care, and political strategy, and then it got personal. >> does it disturb you that so many people hate you? it's a serious question. >> you know, the truth is that the people, and i'm sure previous presidents would say the same thing, whether it was bush or clinton or reagan or anybody, the people who dislike you don't know you. >> but hate you. >> the folks who hate you, they don't know you. >> that's true. >> what they hate is whatever funhouse mirror image of you that's out there. >> joining the company today, as i said, former pennsylvania governor, nbc news political analyst ed rendell. journalist and nbc news contributor karen hunter and the political editor of townhall.com guy benson who is also host of the radio program the guy benson show. karen, i'm wondering what you made of that. you know, when you saw o'reilly and he's and in your face kind of interviewer, i also thought
judicial activism. but the judge used obama's own words from his 2008 campaign when he supported health care reform without an individual mandate. here's the concern, he says. if you haven't made it affordable, how are you going to enforce a mandate? i mean, if a mandate was the solution, we can try that to solve homelessness, by mandating everybody to buy a house. mitt romney knows that conundrum, being for something and against it. he's knocking the president's health care reform but defending his own in massachusetts which included an individual mandate. >> the states have rights that the federal gust doesn't have. under the tenth amendment of the constitution, the powers of the federal government are specifically limited. the states have the rights to, for instance, mandate kids going to school, mandate auto insurance. states have certain rights they can exercise and the right thing for the president to do now with these decisions saying his bill is unconstitutional, with the house taking action to repeal it, with the senate considering doing so, he should press the pause button and
's senior white house correspondent ed henry kicks off our coverage. president obama just passed the two-year mark in office. is he likely to face a liberal primary challenge? >> well, that's a big question for this president. and the new cnn opinion research corporation poll suggests he is highly unlikely to face a primary challenge. that would be good news, obviously, for this white house. look at these numbers. 78% of democrats now saying that their choice for the democratic nomination in 2012 is president obama. only 20% saying they want another democrat. now why is that important? since 1968, there have been four incumbent presidents who faced a primary challenge. all four either stepped aside, retired, didn't run again, or just lost outright lost in the general election. this is a big deal. if he does not have a primary challenge, it makes him a lot stronger in 2012. >> the republicans, seems like a wide open field of candidates. have they come anywhere close to unifying behind just one? >> reporter: no. they are nowhere close to being unified behind a candidate but what is interes

about the transition beginning now, can you explain how this situation moves from president obama talking about change now, and president mubarak talking about change in september? is president obama powerless to estimate that at the next -- to make that happen? >> let's be clear as these are fluid and dynamic events. what we have seen happen over the last few days are events that many people have not seen -- nobody has seen in their lifetime. i think you heard the president last night pretty clearly. i am certainly here to say that the conversation that the president had with president mubarak was direct, it was frank, it was candid, and without getting into exactly what was said, i think the message that the president delivered clearly to president mubarak was that the time for change had come to. >> i'm trying to get the core question of what this president can do about that. >> i think changing all of these instances -- what we have seen transpire has been over the course of many days and has taken place as a result of change that has needed to happen from within the country.

of the regime, think president obama appointed to it that president mubarak is very proud. he said he is going to die on egyptian soil. we have to take into account that level of pride and the need need to be seen externally strong in any kind of exit strategy we have for president mubarak. >> michael, been listening to you over the last couple of weeks as you help this understand this. thanks so much for coming in today. >> jamie: not that easy to get where you need to go. relentless winter weather proving too much for one gas station. take a look at this surveillance video right down to the ground. it collapsed, a citco station, fortunately nobody was in at the time because the station had run out of gas. rick riechmuth has been working all day. rick, is there any end in sight, please? >> no, there is not. maybe the end of february, a little bit of pattern shift but the next week looks like we're going to see two more storms for a lot of people who have seen so many of these storms. one is moving across parts of the great lakes where we have winter storm warnings in the upper parts of new en

"morning joe" starts right now. >> sooner or later, the media stops finding it interesting. >> not the liberal bastards on msnbc. >> but yeah, who watches that. i went on "morning joe" this morning but i like it just because i like being combative with those guys. you know, they're awful. >> joe's a good guy. he's one of us. >> he's all right. he was fair to me. i had fun. they had schumer over from new york on ripping me and then they had a little clip of a state senator hiding out ripping me. it was almost too easy. >> beautiful, beautiful. you have to love that
't know. i don't know. we'll see. >> palin then slammed president obama's budget, which she says does little to reduce the deficit. >> i think that's an overstatement to say we are making a dent in the national debt and in this practice of deficit spending, because it's not really even a dent. i mean, maybe a littthumb print positively affecting what we need done with the deficit, and the debt. not nearly enough. his spending plan does add to the debt and does allow for the next ten years, still, deficit spending. that is the wrong road to be on. that will not cure economic ilz in our country. >> all right. she alsopraised cuomo. she criticized questions of obama's -- oh, no. citizenship, and she called it a distraction. >> good for her. >> there is still -- into his third year as president, there are still some people out there still questioning president obama's faith and citizenship. do you question his faith and citizenship? >> i don't, and those are distractions. what we're concerned about the economy and the policies coming out of his administration. >> all right. i found someth

not to run in the next presidential election. abc news has confirmed that president obama told mubarak he needs to take that action, which would allow for free elections and an orderly transition of power. >> just one more egyptian people, we hate him. 30 years is enough. >> reporter: the largest protest this country has ever seen. despite the government shutdown of public roads and transportation. in cairo where mubarak was hung in effigy, more than 250,000 people packed tahrir square. since friday the protests have generally been peaceful. one poster showed the one casualty. t women have been allowed much less freedom than men have found their voice. >> mubarak leave the country! just leave us alone! we will make it! we are not the first people to get rid of. >> reporter: repercussions are rippling through the middle east. king abdullah vowed to launch political reforms and obama administration spoke for the first time with one possible successor to mubarak, nobel laureate mohammed ed elbaradei. >> president obama addressed from the white house last night. he said egypt's transition mus
in the district. >>> president obama tried to rally democrats to support his new spending plan and threatening to veto budget cuts but the white house may be in for a long fight. we get the latest from doug luzader. >> reporter: even some democrats weren't thrilled with the president's new budget so the white house is hoping to change the minds and brace for battle. as president obama strode to the podium yesterday, he did little to hide his frustration over charges that his budget is too timid. >> let's face it, you guys are pretty impatient. if something doesn't happen today, then the assumption is it won't happen. >> reporter: the white house seemed taken aback spending the day trying to convince everyone about the budget. but the combination of spending cuts seem to alienate democrats and republicans. republicans said the spending is out of control. >> the federal government is borrowing nearly 40 cents of every dollar that it spends. the president's budget as unveiled yesterday does not deal with that situation and in fact makes it even worse. >> reporter: and left untouched in the budget
this situation moves from president obama talking about change now, president mubarak talking about change in september. is president obama powerless to actually make that happen? >> well, let's be clear that these are very fluid and dynamic events. i think what we've seen happen over the course of the past many days, quite honestly, are events that many people have not seen -- nobody's seen in their lifetime. i think you heard the president last night pretty clearly. i'm certainly here to say that the conversation the president had with president mubarak was direct. it was frank. it was candid. and without getting into exactly what was said, i think the message the president delivered clearly to president mubarak was that the time for change had come. >> i guess i'm still trying to get at the core question of what the president, this president can do about that. >> well, i think that -- i think change in all of these instances, what we've seen transpire over the course of many days in cairo and egypt has taken place as a result of change that's needed to happen from within the country. yo
? >> if we have lack of jobs, it's because of obama's miserable economic policy which have run up $3 trillion of debt and has created the worst economy since the great depression. we have debt out of control. governor walker is trying to do something about this. president obama by contrast put out a budget just last week which doesn't address any of our problems. >> what are you talking about? first he inherited $1.3 trillion in debt. he hasn't added $3 trillion in debt. it was an economy near depression he had to pull it out. i call this group of governors double-dipers. these guys are determined to make sure they do. coming in and they are gutted go everything and the investment. all right, it's math -- you have revenues and costs. obama inherited all this. you how can you say.... >> when obama took office, you know that, right? >> we had a meltdown. of course, the collapse of financial, all right tell the automakers he has made it worse. we have a recovery and why should people -- and their entire life is at stake and their kids' future. not main street or wall street, not guys getting hun
's going to vote for barack obama. the administration basically killed the project and went to the air force and said why don't you do it again? guess what, a swing state gets all those jobs. we want to know why america is dysfunctional economically? all you have to do is look at this sleazy story. "the mississippi sun herald" a much different reaction to boeing getting the contract. from the gulf coast, the european-based country competing for the deal was building inii tankers out of alabama. mike? >> "new york post," showรง stopper, cbs has canceled the remaining season of "two and a half men" after charlie sheen attacked his employers in a radio show, calling the show's executive producer a clown, among other things. we'll play you that riveting radio interview. >> that is painful. >> you know, richard, we're going to be talking this morning as are a lot of people about the investigation based on "the race" article with the psy-ops. you say this is the story in afghanistan. >> the other story is a distraction. there's rogue generals who maybe go too far, what have you. i don't kn
guidelines were developed during the end of the bush administration and ultimately approved under the obama administration and signed by the current attorney general. the key piece here, if i may, is that you have to -- obviously, there are going to be places where you have to do law enforcement investigations. in my view, you have to have a balanced approach of not just those law enforcement investigations, but you have to engage with those communities with other non-law enforcement elements of the u.s. government to make sure this is not an adversarial situation. in fact, this is a partnership. and as you know well, many of our tips to uncover active terrorist plots here in the united states have come from the muslim community. so we have to make quite clear that the communities are part of the solution and not part of the problem. and you do that through using a variety of tools, not just law enforcement. >> time of the gentlelady has expired. dr. brown of georgia. >> thank you, mr. chairman. secretary, director, i appreciate y'all being here today. i have several pressing questions for
